Changes to Inky Impression in the new year.

Happy New Year Everyone!!  I hope everyone has a fantastic year!  With the new year, there are some changes happening here at the Inky challenge blog.  We are all very excited about these changes and we think you will be too!

*  Weekly Challenges - We will be going back to our weekly challenges.  Every Wednesday a new challange will be posted.  An individual from the participants will be randomly selected to be "Inked by the Inkettes" (which is not a new change).  A new feature to this is that at the end of the month an individual who participated in all challenges during the month will be randomly selected to receive a goodie back from Inky Impressions!!  

* Tuesday Teasers - Each Tuesday you will see a "teaser" from one of the design teams cards for the upcoming challenge.   

      *Tutorials - Every other Monday, you will have a new tutorial brought to you by a 
           member of the design team.  

      *Anything but a card - Every other Monday (the non-tutorial weeks), you will have 
           new creation made by a member of the design team. 

*This and That Thursday - You never know what it will be.  It could be an Oldie but Goodie Stamp that is highlighted by the DT, possibly a recap of what's going on or upcoming.  It's just a little bit of everything :D

*Friday Finds - This is where you will see a card featuring an Inky Impressions image.  This will be found through yahoo, facebook, splitcoast stamps, etc.).  So make sure you tag Inky Impressions in your posts so that you have a chance to be featured on the blog.
